In as little as two weeks, Democratic congressional candidate Kevin Strouse (PA-8) has garnered a second major endorsement from an area labor group.
On Wednesday, according to a press release, the Pennsylvania Association of Staff Nurses and Allied Professionals (PASNAP) endorsed Strouse for Congress in Pennsylvania’s 8th Congressional District. PASNAP is a 5,000 member union of nurses and health professionals, with a large concentration in Southeast Pennsylvania, including Montgomery and Bucks Counties.
“Kevin Strouse took the time to listen to us and understand the issues that nurses face on the job, like inadequate nurse-to-patient ratios and risks of workplace violence,” said Patricia Eakin, PASNAP President and emergency room nurse. “He is dedicated to standing up for the middle class and will fight for us, for our jobs, and for our patients.”
Responding to PASNAP’s endorsement, Kevin Strouse said, ”I am proud to have the support of the hard working men and women of the Pennsylvania Association of Staff Nurses and Allied Professionals, who provide a vital service to our communities in Bucks and Montgomery Counties. I am committed to doing everything I can to work with them to ensure that families and seniors in the 8th District have access to high quality, affordable health care.”
PASNAP’s endorsement comes on the heels of another major labor endorsement from the American Postal Workers’ Union Local 7048 12 days ago.
Pat McFarland, a registered nurse from Croydon and retired United States Air Force Lieutenant Colonel, recognized Kevin Strouse’s years of service to the country as a testament to his character. “I know he will serve the people of Bucks County as selflessly and faithfully as he’s been serving the American people for over a decade. We need true leadership in Washington. The 8th district needs Kevin Strouse in Congress.”
